The Feldenkrias method is a form of somatic education that uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance human functioning. This organic approach to learning asks the student to listen to herself – to move within a range of comfort, to move without unnecessary effort. Instead of copying others, the student learns to slow down and listen to herself. In this way, we become aware of what we are doing, rather than what we think we are doing hence we are able to do what we want.
